No wonder you are writing a book.You probably know more about the Binning family than anyone I know.I don't know why they never talked about their ancestors.My Grandfather Binning was such a special man as was my Dad. All of the Binning Clan as they called us in Mansfield was really close but we didn't know the others who lived elsewhere nearly as well as we should have.I grew up with Uncle Leonard's children,my first cousins who lived on the same road and knew the great aunts and Great Grandmother Binning (Georgia Annabelle) but that was it. It's a shame we never had Binning reunions like my husbands family did. I am very interested any your family and anything else you dig up on the Binnings.
Do you know anything about a Major General Henry Lewis Benning (spelling different) for whom Ft. Benning Georgia was named?There is a Benning Road up here and there was at one time a portrait of a Binning or Benning hanging in the Library of Congress.I'm trying to find out more from the LOC.If you look up Ft. Benning's website it will tell you about the General. I have been wondering if there is a connection.
I agree with you that it is nice to find someone else intereted in our family heritage.It is almost like solving a mystery.
You helped me with the Binning side of our family tree and now I'm stuck on my mother's side of the family.Her Great Grandparents are a mystery to me and I know very little about her grandparents on the Meyer side (her mother's family )from Alsace Lorraine in France.We have Grandpa's family from France traced back to the 1600s.
Take care of yourself until we can communicate again.
